Wooden Heart Tags With A Charm

These white, wooden hearts with a very useful eyelet came from the wedding section of Hobbycraft, they cost £3.00 for a pack of 12 ……
…… but I managed to pay just  £2.25 when they  were in a sale, which works out at about 16p each.
They are part of my stash that needs to be used up and I thought what could be any quicker to do than tags!!! I am always nervous when I handwrite straight on to something and these were no exception.  I used a black fine liner pen, but made sure I gave the ink ample time to dry before fiddling anymore with the heart.
I was just going to add the red ribbon, but got to thinking that I also have a pile of silver charms that need using up too, so added, in this instance a bee,  attaching it to the eyelet with a jump ring.  When I start my “conveyor belt” of tag making,  I will vary the type of charm and the ribbons, to give a variety of choice, when I come to sell them.
I’ve experimented a little with the packaging (the tags might get put away for a while and I didn’t want to risk them getting grubby) and decided to keep it very simple using a piece of dark blue card in a cello bag.
